Rhinoplasty surgery may be considered for achieving a narrower nasal appearance.

Based on your frontal photo, you appear to have widness of the upper, middle, and lower thirds of your nose. Well performed rhinoplasty surgery may be considered for achieving a narrower, less distracting, and more feminine nasal appearance. Surgical fees near you may be found on the Worth It page here on RS. Hope this helps. Dr Joseph

Rhinoplasty candidate: Wide nasal bridge, bulbous tip

Hi,

You are a great candidate for surgical rhinoplasty. The cost of this procedure will vary depending on geographic location and experience. Based on the picture you provided, you seem to have a wide nasal bridge and a bulbous tip. Depending on the reason for your bulbous tip- surgery may require defatting the tip, cartilage grafting, and/or reshaping, this will reduce the width and bulbosity of your nose. The bridge of your nose can be slimmed down. I recommend doing research on facial plastic surgeons and scheduling a consultation. During the consultation you can ask to have your nose computer imaged so you and the surgeon can discuss what changes you would like to make. This will also give you a realistic picture of what your nose could look like. It is imperative to find a surgeon who has performed many rhinoplasties; this will help avoid any future revisions. In good hands, you will get a great result. 

Best,
Dr. S

From the limited picture that you have submitted you seem to be a good candidate for rhinoplasty surgery to narrow and create a smaller nose tip and bridge. Within RealSelf you should be able to find average prices within your area by looking at previous posts from other patients like yourself. Please be aware that cost, however, should not be the ultimate factor in your decision to choose a competent plastic surgeon who will be operating on your face.

Excellent Rhinoplasty Candidate

Dear bepohica, I agree that you would be an excellent candidate for a rhinoplasty to refine your nose and help balance your profile and overall facial aesthetics. I would suggest since you are on realself that you find some surgeons who have many reviews and read the surgeons reviews. If a large portion of those reviews are regarding rhinoplasty surgery then likely the surgeon denotes a large portion of his/her practice to this speciality. Schedule some consultations with these experts. Many surgeons like myself will schedule phone consultations as well as email consultations for patients who would like to travel. During consultation I would highly suggest that you have digital imaging performed to show you the proposed changes to your nose taking into consideration your nasal anatomy and skin thickness. Then you can review the surgeons before and after photographs to ensure natural looking rhinoplasty results and also see many noses similar to your own. I have included a link below of rhinoplasty before and after photographs for your review as well as a video above of a patient with a similar complaint. Prices will vary from surgeon to surgeon. I personally offer a special price for my realself patients which is listed on my public profile. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.

Rhinoplasty?

Thanks for your question and photo. You basically would benefit from a more refined version of your already decent-looking nose. Your nose appears to be somewhat big in scale compared to the rest of your facial features and your tip just needs some refinement. Your bony bridge and it's base are wide so your nasal bones should be narrowed during the case. Seeking out a consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty would be your next step who could offer you a computer image of your nose to help you envision your end result. Fees for rhinoplasty including the fee for the surgeon, surgical facility, anesthesia, and post operative care will depend on the city and surgeon. With that said it's best to make an informed decision based on their experience and speciality in the field.

Rhinoplasty

Thank you for your question. Rhinoplasty works to improve the size, proportion and overall appearance of your nose. Changing the nose can completely change the look of the face because it is such a prominent feature. I suggest that you move forward and consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon to determine your candidacy. You can discuss price, which varies based on the involvement of the procedure, the surgeon and the local market.
